!!Anime and Manga
* ''Manga/GunslingerGirl''. One of the missions takes place during a showing of ''Tosca'', and we see just about every important scene at least in part. Claes has apparently memorized Tosca's whole cry to God speech/aria, which seems somehow appropriate.

!!Film
* Pauline is listening to "E lucevan le stelle" in ''Film/HeavenlyCreatures'' when told she can't see Juliet anymore until her grades and attitude improve.
* In ''Film/QuantumOfSolace'', Film/JamesBond spies on a [[NebulousEvilOrganization Quantum]] meeting which takes place during a representation of ''Tosca'' during the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bregenzer_Festspiele Bregenz Festival]]. The representation is real; the scenes were filmed on the Seebühne (floating stage) in June 2008.

!!Literature
* The Creator/AgathaChristie short story "Swan Song" involves a soprano who really stabs the baritone during a performance of ''Tosca'', in vengeance for a past wrong.



* ''VideoGame/HitmanBloodMoney'' has you assassinate two targets during a rehearsal of the execution scene. In fact, one of the popular ways of getting rid of the actor playing Cavaradossi is by [[NotSoFakePropWeapon switching the prop pistol used in the scene with a real version]]. The {{Irony}} is so delicious you could serve it at a restaurant.

* ''Series//PeakyBlinders'' uses ''Tosca'' as a significant parallel to multiple events in the story. First, Campbell and his mole Grace attend a performance of ''Tosca'', where the scene that specifically plays as [[spoiler: Grace agrees to be a honey trap for Tommy]] is Scarpia (the corrupt policeman) seducing Tosca (the innocent singer), as well as the scene where Tosca turns on Scarpia, stabbing him to death for his crimes against her lover. Ironically, in Season 2, it's not Grace but [[spoiler: Polly that Campbell pulls a ScarpiaUltimatum on, and Polly who takes vengeance on Campbell.]]
